REPORT: Cops Steal Hundreds Of Millions During Traffic Stops From People Not Charged With Crimes

This content below, shared by G.G. Allin via CopBlock.org/Submit, touches on a Washington Post that thorough details the rampant theft of property from peaceful travelers from those who operate under the guise of “protecting and serving.”

You are encouraged to read that entire write-up, Stop and seize: Aggressive police take hundreds of millions of dollars from motorists not charged with crimes by Alice Crites, Alexia Campbell, Cathaleen Chen, Hoai-Tran Bui, Nagwa Abdallah and Justin Warren.

________________

We have all seen the videos and read the stories of law enforcement illegally seizing cash and other personal property from innocent American citizens that are simply & legally traveling from one part of our country to another. Unsuspecting drivers are typically profiled, illegally pulled over and coerced into a vehicle search. Cash and personal property are being seized, often without a warrant and often without a crime being committed. Drivers that have had money and property seized without cause are rarely able to get their cash and or property back from law enforcement because legal fees often out way their loss in cash & or property.

The Washington Post reported today that over 25,000 LEOs are utilizing chat rooms and networking system called Black Asphalt Electronic Network to brag about their highway robbery conquests & share tactics on how to better steal from innocent citizens.Within the Black Asphalt system, officers are encouraged to brag about particularly big hauls, and the members with the highest seizure total at the end of the year are dubbed a “Royal Knight.”

Editors note: Especially since the security theater of 9/11, police employees have systematically engaged in the outright stealing of small-to-large quantities of Federal Reserve Notes in the possession of people suspected of no crime. Those people are told, “prove that it was not obtained via illicit channels or else we keep it.”

Police employees across the USSA have been trained by individuals working at companies funding from their friends at the DC-based gang, the “Department of Justice” (a misnomer if ever there were one) on how best to arrive at situations that leave them richer, at the expense of those they pretend are their customers. One common tactic is to use a dog (that can be trained to trigger on command by the handler) when the person stopped does not give consent to a search.

The fact that this practice is so widespread is not surprising. This type of situation will exist, and it will get even more oppressive, unless the legitimacy granted to these roving bands of highwaymen wearing badges is withdrawn. Clearly, when the main motivation is to grow the size and scope of their outfits, and to further centralize and solidify their monopolistic control, it comes at the cost of our individual rights. Will you sit by and let this occur?

If this “legal” theft concerns you, check out Americans for Forfeiture Reform, which advocates for the reformation of America’s asset forfeiture laws to protect individual rights to property, due process, and equal protection.

But even more important, is to take your views to their logical conclusions. If it would not be just for me to stop you and shake you down, it cannot be just for another individual simply because they wear a badge. Then, base your actions on that fact.

    When blue people do it, they call it “civil forfeiture”.
    When black people do it, they call it “looting”.

  • JC

    More typical copblock BS. The extreme paranoia the author offers is incredible. The best way to deal with the police is to stop breaking the law. I realize streetsheep copblockers don’t care if people are DUI, speeding, blowing threw stop signs and parking illegally, but those laws are there for a reason.

  • steve

    Your an Unamerican piece of crap . Your stupid mouth needs to stop.

  • ben dover

    780m is no BS. Read the nightmare stories of what it takes these people to get even half there money back on top of Attorney fees. You need to go sit in the middle of the highway and we pray you become part of the road kill sector .

    Cops Arr pirates.

    “JC • 7 hours ago
    but those laws are there for a reason”

    Ya, and the reason is: so bureaucrats can financially prey on the public through extortionate road piracy.

  • t

    Oh my.
    Please tell that you guys aren’t really this stupid.
    Tell that you gs have some real idea of how assets forfeiture really works before you make blond and idiotic comments.

  • JC

    No, they are there because the people ask for them. To actually think speeding laws, DUI, blowing through red lights ect.. are just to make money is purely ignorant.

  • JC

    Another pathetic rant by a streetsheep copblocker. You are constantly sitting on your finger just to hear a knuckle pop. Why don’t you go sit in the middle of the highway. We pray you become part of the road kill sector.

  • JC

    Oh look, it’s little stevie. The true unamerican piece of crap is you. You make threats towards me and you don’t follow up. You come to San Diego PM me and we will get together. Isn’t that want you want? By the way, bring your mom. She can carry you home.

  • JC

    More pussy threats by a streetsheep copblocker. You are nothing but a keyboard warrior. Come down to San Diego, PM me and we will meet and discuss it. You are nothing but the true form of a coward.

  • ben dover

    Sounds more like the way PIGS drive

  • Shawn

    Blow me. You know full well that this is being misused. The laws were very carefully written to put the burdon on the citizen, not LE.
    In Texas a while back, you pigs got hammered in court for extorting people to sign away any claim to the money or property. “Sign away, or DCF takes your kids” for some. Nor was it always over tens of thousands. A few hundred dollars can suddenly be “drug money” without any proof.
    You guys no longer even care if someone is reliably guilty of a crime, as long as you can take the money.

    If you don’t have enough to arrest, you clearly don’t have enough to take property.

  • t

    Well….”blow me”. What an excellent retort sir.
    Wait…I almost missed “you pigs”.
    The power of your intellect is amazing

  • t

    Nightmare stories. Oh my

  • ben dover

    Really you think these truths are ok !

  • Yankeefan

    what does this response have to do with this topic?

  • Yankeefan

    In analyzing the civil forfeiture process, The Post reported
    that there have been 61,998 cash seizures made since September 11, 2001 without search warrants or indictments. Of those, only a sixth were
    legally challenged. But in 41 percent of the cases that were challenged,
    the government was ordered to return the money.

    The need to use seizure money to fund otherwise cash-strapped budgets can lead to excesses. In a well-documented case in Tenaha, TX, local police officers illegally confiscated an estimated $3 million in cash and property between 2006 and 2008.

    Please tell us how it works! It seems simple enough. You pull me over for going 3 mph over, start asking drug questions within 3 minutes because, after all, 3 mph over and drugs are the scourge of our time. Then when you frisk me because you are wetting your pants scared to death, you find 2k in cash, have your dog sniff it and claim that’s PC to seize it and send me on my way.

    The New Yorker did a very detailed 14 page report on this. If we misunderstood it why was one local sheriff department only taking cash money for bail then having their dog sniff it? Why, in the story I have linked before from Tennessee talking about the war on drugs, were the police stopping the money side of the highway 10-1 based on their own records. If it is soooooooooooooo easy to detect the drugs, why go after the money side? I thought the concept was to stop the drugs.

    Sorry but we understand how the forfeit seizure laws work!
